It's Friday, and I don't know about where you live, but here in West, TX. it's finally starting to feel like Spring time! We've been doing our Stroller Stride workouts outside this week, I mowed our lawn for the first time today, and we played outside for a while with friends this morning!
There's just something about the freshness of the Spring Season that is just....mmmmm good!
It feels good not only because the sun is finally shining, but there's something deep within my soul that feels incredible when the season goes from Winter to Spring!
Here's my 5 Favorite things about Spring Time!
5) The fact that you can be outside all the time!
4) Tulips!!! I love them!
3) Going barefoot or wearing sandals every dang day!
2) Being able to go for a run after dinner because it is still daylight! Really spring runs all together are amazing!
Oh my word, Easter is my favorite holiday!
Since I was a child, I loved Easter. Part of it is the excitement of an Easter egg hunt and the anticipation of finding, and snagging up as many eggs as you can before others get them.
There's also the incredible true meaning of Easter that has a huge place in my life/heart, which makes me cherish the holiday a ton.
Then of course, more childhood memories and fun with dying and decorating Easter eggs. What great memories you create doing those simple holiday traditions.
Let's get real though, one of the main reasons I LOVE EASTER, is because of the eggs. And I'm not just talking about the hard boiled, or candy filled eggs. I'm talking about the yummy, yummy Robbin Eggs!!
These things....they get me every year! Well these and the Starburst Jelly Beans!
I seriously cannot get enough of these! I love the whopper eggs, and every Easter I get so excited to go stock up on my favorite candies! (Easter has the best candy!)
So last year, being pregnant and all, I had my fair share of these things. Then I promised myself that in 2015, I would skip Easter candy! SAY WHAT!?!? Why the heck would I do that? Well, I guess I somehow knew I would be on a journey of NO SUGAR!
So, this year, I'm sticking with my no sugar, and trading in the fake eggs, and getting some real ones!
So if you didn't hear, we are getting CHICKS!! Read about my announcement HERE!
That's what I'm doing this Easter....no candy eggs for me. I'll be raising my chicks, and preparing them to begin laying me some real, yummy, full of nutrition fresh eggs!
I will be getting them this weekend, so keep an eye out on my Instagram to get a first glimpse at those cuties!
And I challenge you...this year, do more boiled eggs, (and have fun dying them with the kids), than you do candy filled eggs! Let's #LeaveYourLegacy starting with the holidays! It doesn't all have to revolve around unhealthy foods! Teach your children that you can have awesome family traditions that don't revolve around sugar and candy!
